When Anna, George and their son Schorschi arrive at their lakeside villa for a week's holiday, their idyll doesn't last long. While father and son sail the lake in their yacht, Anna is asked by a neighbour's houseguests for a handful of eggs. But the neat, educated appearance of these young men betrays their sinister intentions, and Anna starts to realise something is wrong…They are there to play games… cat-and-mouse games.  A provocative and brutal thriller from director Michael Haneke (Amour),  this harrowing vision of emotional torment and psychopathic violence is one of the most chilling ever made, a thriller that will take you beyond terror, beyond suspense, beyond evil...Starring Susanne Lothar, Ulrich Muhe & Arno Frisch. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. 2001.
